Rainy Weekend Recap

Monday greetings, dear friends.
It's always a big deal for us here in the desert when we get a bit of rain. We had our share of it this past weekend which made for a nice change of pace. We filled our rainy days with pets and pampering. Wanna' see?

Carrie is out of town for a work function so we've had her dog, Marcus {aka Sparky-the-dog} staying with us. Here's a photo I took of him Friday night ~ he's always super happy the first day at the grand-parents:

I was in desperate need of a pedicure, and it was weird to get one without Carrie ~ but I survived and my toes look pretty. :o)

As I mentioned, rain...

Fun thing this weekend: I did some stitching. It was a great rainy-day project! I used one of my sunflower photos, edited in PhotoShop, printed it on printer-fabric and stitched around it. FUN!!! I'll show the completed project in a couple of weeks as this is a gift for a sweet friend of mine...

Rexy enjoying the weekend and all the rain:

Whiskers, chillin' in the craft room:

And peanut butter chocolate chip cookies for a rainy afternoon:
~sigh~
Such a great weekend...I'd love just one more day...
But, alas, there's work to be done and more memories to make.
Blessings all around!!!

Whoa! You had me at the chocolate chip cookies! We need the rain. What type of printer-fabric do you use?

Having a weekend WITHOUT rain would be a big deal for us at the moment! Seems so strange that it is a novelty for you! Those cookies look delicious.

I would never, ever have thought of printing a picture to stitch, you are brillantly creative :) I love Whiskers!

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Looks like a pretty good weekend Deb! enjoy the week!

Ginger said...

Marcus is very cute!! Oh those cookies, they look so delicious, I'm drooling!

Margaret said...

We had a bit of rain this weekend too. It was just a tad, but it cooled things down and was delightful. You'll have to tell us how you could tell Rexy was enjoying the rain.

I love the way you adapted a photo for the stitching project - very cool Deb!

Lady J said...

Ahhhh...I love the rain! Good thing I'm living in Oregon!
Your kitty is darling and the cookies look fantastic, too!

Karen said...

OH, I love the look of that sunflower project. Can't wait to see it finished.

Mom said...

The sunflower stitchery (is that a word??) looks beautiful even in the unfinished state! So clever, that daughter of mine! Love you! xo

It's good to hear another perspective on the rain - it keeps everything, um, in perspective

Gail said...

Sounds like you had a great rainy day weekend and those cookies look yummy
